Over time I developed many workflows to work more efficiently with CODMs, ODFs and HW configuration files compared to editing the XML file directly. One trick is, not to work with the XML files directly but with a database (or Numbers / Excel). Unfortunately, MDA stopped to provide direct access to the internal HW MySQL databases. Editing XML files is a pain in the neck, especially when bulk changes have to be made. But luckily, there are ways around this issue :-)

After working for almost two years with MySQL I currently use SQLite for development and PostgreSQL for export. The database import is done using an R script (R is a free statistical software). Manipulation of the SQL database is extremely simple and safe compared to edit the XML file directly. The database import with R takes about a minute, the database export only seconds.

Everybody, who is interested in more details, is welcome to contact me privately.
